The Big Give Christmas Challenge 2017 which offers to double donations made to 500 selected charities has raised over £4.5 million in 24 hours.
Donations can be made and doubled until December 5th Midday or until charities’ fund are exhausted – whichever is the sooner.
Alex Day of Big Give said: “We have been blown away by the generosity to this year's campaign, enabling the work of charities to have twice the impact this Christmas.”
Charities taking part cover a broad range of causes from protecting endangered species, to providing overseas aid, to delivering lifesaving healthcare in the UK, such as trialing an artificial pancreas and gene therapy research.
